Hotel Fire Protection, Inspections, & Safety Services
Hotel fire protection is essential for ensuring both your guests and your property are kept as safe as possible. But, with fire code requirements constantly changing and fire protection technologies always improving, it can be hard for a hotel owner or property manager to make sure that every aspect of their hotel fire safety requirements are up to date. From trying to figure out when your sprinkler system needs to be inspected to ensuring you have the right type of fire extinguishers available on-site, partnering with a reliable provider of hotel fire inspections is always recommended.
Hotel Fire Safety Best Practices
A hotel’s fire protection requirements can vary by several factors. Things such as building size, location, and amenities offered can all impact what your basic fire safety requirements will be. But there are a few basic best practices that every hotel needs to adhere to. These include:
- All hallways, doors, and stairwells must be clear and free of obstructions
- A hotel needs to have an evacuation plan with the routes posted and clearly visible throughout the building
- All hotel employees need to be trained on emergency response protocol (fire drills are important)
- A hotel needs to always have an established fire response team on call. Staff should know who to call in the event of a fire
Fire Safety in Hotels
Along with following the basic hotel fire safety best practices, every hotel must utilize certain tools and technologies required for proper hotel fire protection. These include:
- Fire alarms and smoke detectors in every room
- Exit signs with battery backups
- Emergency lights
- Manual pull-station alarm systems
- Self-closing doors in stairwells
- Portable fire extinguishers
- Fire sprinkler systems in every room
A hotel’s fire sprinkler system is one of its most important tools for suppressing fires. This system activates the moment it detects a fire, making it one of the most effective means of stopping a fire before it has a chance to get out of control. Your sprinkler system will also give your guests the time they need to evacuate the building safely and in a timely manner while also keeping the damage to your building to a minimum. Because of the important role your fire sprinkler system plays, it needs to be installed properly and tested and serviced regularly. For this reason, fire codes require all hotel sprinkler systems comply with the latest NFPA standards and be regularly inspected and maintained by qualified technicians.
